Family warning parents after Tonka truck fire

A family is warning parents after their young son's toy Tonka truck caught fire.

Sheena Haney and her husband captured the Tonka dump truck burning on cell phone video.

Haney said the fire started when her husband tried to move the truck at their Florida home.

She claims her husband kept putting the fire out with a hose, but it repeatedly caught fire and the wheels just kept on running.

There was a recall on the trucks issued in May, but that was only for the acceleration pedal sticking - not fires.

Haney said Toys-R-Us told her what happened to their truck was an isolated incident.

A video from 2016 showed another ride-on Tonka dump truck bursting into flames in the back of someone's truck in Washington.
